It looks like the 2023 BMW M2 will not have the much-debated long Kidney Grilleby Dim Angelov, on LISTEN 01:59
It seems BMW has decided to distinguish the M versions from their regular counterparts even more. We already saw it on the BMW 3 and 4 Series, and their respective M versions. Now, we see it on its smallest sibling – the M2. Although the car is still heavily camouflaged, the kidneys are perfectly visible. Perhaps BMW did that in order to put to rest potential worries that, like the M3 and M4, the M2 will have the much-debated long kidney grilles.
2023 BMW M2 - A Refreshing Front End
A leak from China suggested the M2 G87 will indeed have a different kidney grille than the regular 2 Series, and these spy images confirm that.
You’ll be glad to know the long kidneys that span all the way to the bottom of the front fascia will not make an appearance on the M2.
Although at first glance, the 2 Series and M2 kidney grille seem to be the same, the M2 will feature a different mesh and looks like it’s going to be a bit more angular. It seems BMW is switching to more angular forms, as we’ve seen on updated models, like the X3 and X4.
The different front grille design isn’t the only thing that would set apart the M2 from the regular 2 Series. Apart from the expected more aggressive body kit, the Chinese leak suggested the M2 will feature different headlights. Unfortunately, we cannot confirm that from these images, as they are still hidden.
The M2 will also have a bigger, curved dashboard, instead of the one we’ll get on the normal 2 Series Coupe.
As always, we expect more details to be revealed as the official debut nears. The BMW M2 G87 is scheduled to debut in December 2022, as a 2023 model.
